Right now, I have openSuse 11.1 installed and working well enough to use happily, however, there is one nagging problem I don’t know how to tackle.
I’m in OS X 10.6.1 running VirtualBox 3.0.8 and the previously mentioned version of openSuse.
When it boots up and I login, there’s a floppy disk showing on the desktop. I’ve tried to mount and unmount it, but no dice, the only error I get is a window which contains no text, the picture of a red circle…error thing, and a button that says “close” next to an X.
What’s really strange is that VirtualBox doesn’t have any floppy disk images mounted, so whatever linux is doing, it might be doing on its own.
What’s even more strange is that I tried installing xubuntu the other day, and it did the same thing…the same way under the same circumstances, but xubuntu let me see the floppy disk’s properties, where it reported that the floppy disk had about 15GB free. I sense something is slightly off.
where should I look to make this insane phantom floppy disk go away?
also, I don’t see how it’d effect disk mounting, but my window manager in both cases was Xfce 4 - if that explains anything useful
